Step 1 : 

Pick up a driftwood branch on the beach. Don't forget to clean it to avoid small bugs. I soaked it for 24 hours in a mixture of white vinegar and insecticide. Dry it well in the sun.

Step 3: The flag

The flag can be made from lace or fabric. I've made several attempts. And everything is cute. It depends on your taste.

How do you do it? Hang a small piece of fabric. Fold it in half and glue with a glue gun. Cut into the shape of a pennant.

Insert a long thread at one end of the sail. Tie a knot. Glue the small flag with the glue gun. Tie another knot. From here, you can insert beads if you like.

Step 4: the boat hull

To hang your driftwood on your sail, simply pass the cotton thread through each stitch of the sail and around the pole.
